Friends Co-Creator Talks Possibility Of A Revival Series — But Will She Squash Your Dreams??

no title

With Netflix announcing more revivals of old shows like Fuller House, Arrested Development, and Gilmore Girls — fans are expecting pretty much any successful show to be resurrected in some form!

Unfortunately for Friends fans, co-creator Marta Kauffman said we won’t be seeing a reboot of the beloved NBC sitcom anytime soon!

Speaking at Sunday’s Television Critics’ Association press tour, the showrunner admitted she found the series’ long lived popularity “shocking.”

The 59-year-old is also too busy with her current Netflix series Grace and Frankie to revisit her past success, telling Us Weekly:

“For me, why go back to that territory again? I get to do [on Grace and Frankie] what I loved about Friends, which is, make a show that’s got some hope and joy to it and explore something completely new. That was about a certain time in your life, and I had just left [the] Friends time of my life. This is about the time of my life I’m looking towards.”

Kauffman, who co-created the hit series with David Crane, will be appearing in an upcoming NBC special honoring director Jim Burrows — along with series stars Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc.

But just like what some of the cast has already made clear, Kaufmann insisted the two-hour special “is not a Friends reunion.”

Well, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a bit longer until we get the reunion we all deserve!
